Bubi

Bubi is an Eagle Owl living in the tower of the Helsinki Olympic Stadium. He likes to watch football, with Finland being his favourite team. In 2007 he helped to bring home the bacon in a game against Belgium and was named Helsinki’s “Resident of the Year”. The call of the Eagle Owl is a profound “ooh-hu” with emphasis on the first syllable for the male. Usually on a night out (after a few glasses of bubbly) Bubi hollers a high-pitch “uh-Hu” and are then confused with a female owl. Needless to say, he never scores on a night out. He likes to travel but made a vow to never visit the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul since the Turkish name for the Eagle Owl is “Puhu”.
